Is this wired correctly?

I know the two big wires are good but want to make sure for the smaller one.
The small wire hole size only fits with that bolt (7 mm head) but what baffle me is that I thought it was on the other one (8 mm bolt head) but it can't be, it doesn't fit!
I want to make sure before I try to start the car.

I looked but could not find any pic of the connections.

Thank you in advance.

Good morning Bertrand. Now that you have shown us the starter, I am kind of surprised that you didn’t paint it, and make it perfect, like the rest of your car..
Just saying. Sorry. Heck, your wife is used to missing you at the table, around supper time. Go get dirty!
Cheers
Don

Well if we’re going to pick nits...

The zip ties should be white. :hiding:

I thought the red zip ties were appropriate. I have never been a concours judge.....

O.K., if we are going to be picky here, why not red zip ties on red cables, black ties on black cables, and brown ones on brown cables? I used to work for Bell Canada as a business technician, and we had different zip ties for different colour cables. Simple enough.
Is there a reason for only white zip ties?
Cheers

That’s what the factory used in that location. Concours judging isn’t about what makes sense... :roflmao:

WOW, these ties are even magnetic!! Put these all over your car and they will help pull the car closer to the center of the earth, increasing cornering capability. But, they might also reduce your top speed on the Autobahn if you are going uphill.

What a find! Thanks.
